After spending my undergraduate years at UAF, I knew I wanted to pursue my MBA in the College of Business and Security Management. As a Teaching Assistant in the College of Business and Security Management, I have not only had the opportunity to pursue my masters with financial aid from the university, but I have also had the opportunity to have my former and current professors as mentors. In my courses, I am given the opportunity to apply the curriculum to my desired field, and I feel confident that the skills I have acquired in my coursework will be an asset in the field.
